The Okavango Delta….An emerald expanse in the midst of the parched Kalahari, the
Okavango Delta holds an incredible ninety-five percent of the country’s total surface
water in an inland delta fed by the mighty Okavango River. Unlike every other major
river on the planet, the Okavango never reaches the ocean but disappears in an endless web of lagoons and lush wetlands. The pristine landscape and diverse wildlife of this unique territory make it one of Africa’s prime tourist destinations. The best time for game viewing is during the period between May and October. The best time for birding and vegetation is during the rainy season when most of the young are born. The most impressive month is August. The environment has large numbers of animal populations that are otherwise rare, such as crocodile, red lechwe, sitatunga, elephant, wild dogs, buffalo, wattled crane. The water systems support many kinds of fish and more common mammals and bird life.
The Kalahari conjures up the mystery and romance of the African outback – a harsh
desert land where the extraordinary San people have thrived for generations. A trek
through the Kalahari today is still a journey of adventure and discovery – a challenge
of perseverance and endurance; a pilgrimage never to be forgotten. It is one of the
world’s largest expanses of semi-desert. The Botswana’s Kalahari is bush land, with
trees and grasses supporting a wide variety of wildlife. Its open Savannah plains are
transformed when the annual rains are good, drawing game from surrounding areas
in a migratory pattern that reflects a time before fences divided the land into the wild
and tamed. The Kalahari is the home of the famous black-maned lions. One of the
rarest predators in Africa, the brown hyena, can be seen in the Makgadikgadi, in
Chobe National Park consists of a massive floodplain which is a result of the annual
floodwaters from Angola that find their way from the Zambezi River into the Chobe
River and thus provide water and food for an abundance of wildlife throughout the year.
Chobe is famous for its large buffalo and elephant herds and the green grasses of the
floodplain attract impressive herds of zebra and kudu. In addition to a variety of predators,
there is an abundance of bird life which inhabits these beautiful waterways. Game drives
take you into mopane woodlands where animals shelter during the heat of the day.
You may come across a leopard resting in the branch of a tree or a pride of lions sleeping
in the shade before venturing out for a nights hunting. The best time to visit is from April
until the end of September.
